The lunch menu has gone up slightly since April – it’s now 15.50€ for three courses and a glass of wine. Food of this quality it’s well worth it! Click the menu to read it.
As a starter I ordered Tortilla de Butifarra Blanca con “Coca de Vidre” con Tomate – a white Catalan sausage omelette with crunchy flat bread and tomato. It might look like an ordinary French omelette, but it had an amazing savoury white sausage filling.
I was lucky enough to try the vegetarian starter option – Macarrones gigantes con Salteado de Robellones, Trompetas del la Muerte y Polvo de Parmesano – Giant macaroni with sautéed wild mushrooms, black chanterelle and parmesan cheese. The Saffron Milk Cap and Trumpet of Death mushrooms were sublime!
As a main course I ordered Conejo Guisado con Caracoles y Chicharrones, con su Picada – Rabbit Stew with Snails, Cracklings and Chopped Nuts. This proved to be a very popular choice and wonderfully savoury.
The most outstanding pudding was the Passion Pie – it looked like a fried egg, but the white was made with meringue and the soft, runny yolk was passion fruit. I didn’t order it, but I did get a little taste – words fail me!
I had a Yogur con Espuma de Frambuesas – yoghurt with raspberry foam. It was deliciously light with a little sharpness, but it wasn’t quite as good as Passion Pie.
